Who will be the last player added to the W.C. all-star roster?

There are presumably 4 options for the final spot

Since it was announced Griffin will start in place of Yao, that leaves 1 spot on the western conference roster for the last player.

the candidates:

F-Lamar Odom, LA Lakers

Stats: 15.4 ppg, 9.6 rpg, 57% FG, 2.9 apg

F-LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland

Stats: 21.3 ppg, 9 rpg, 1.2 bpg, 49% FG

F-Kevin Love, Minnesota

Stats: 21.4 ppg, 15.5 rpg, 47% FG, 44% 3PT

F-Zach Randolph, Memphis

Stats: 20 ppg, 13.2 rpg, 49% FG, 1.5 apg

who do you guys think deserves it? my vote is for Kevin Love

I'm hoping it's K-Love but it

I'm hoping it's K-Love but it can very well be LaMarcus Aldridge because his team is winning.

Stern most of the time picks

Stern most of the time picks a guy alot of fans overwhelmingly say deserves to be there..I think he's picking Kevin Love

My vote is for LA

I have stated my case before, and if he did make it I would be happy with every single ASG sub, which would probably be a first. My vote would be LA, Kevin Love, Z-Bo and Lamar Odom in that order. In a different world, Lamar Odom would have been an All-Star multiple times by now, but I am pretty sure he is fine with having some jewelry instead, which the other 3 are far and away from getting.

i know not many true fans

i know not many true fans care what race a player is as long as he's good..But i bet behind closed doors..There are alot of white fans and whites media types love the fact that a white player is having a record breaking year...

A source has mentioned(I

A source has mentioned(I believe it was yahoo's Adrian Wojanowski(SP?) via BTPH on another post) that Steve Nash is a favorite for the spot. So I guess that's a possibility. In my opinion, it should be Lamarcus Aldridge. If J Smoove wasn't good enough then Lamar Odom isn't, Blake took the bad team but good numbers spot so sorry to K Love. Zach Randolph has had more help and their teams are similar so I guess ZBo would be second in line. And that is my logic. :)

As a white person

Who watched Kevin Love play in Oregon, that statement you just made Rudeboy, is ridiculous. If people or the media do, it is truly sad. Plus, as well as he is rebounding, who's record is he breaking? Everyone mentions the 30-30 Moses Malone thing, but his team is AWFUL. Yes, the All-Star game is based on individual achievement, but a good way to prove that is by winning games. I am completely impartial when it comes to Love and Aldridge, I like them both the same, and I completely think Aldridge deserves to make the team. However, I feel race has NOTHING to do with who is chosen. I do not understand why race is seemingly brought into these things still, it is just mind boggling to me. A race trying to claim a player for pride, white people being happy that a white player is rebounding the ball well. You guys seriously care about this stuff? If Love makes the All-Star game, I think it has nothing to do with his being white and everything to do with his averaging 2 more RPG than any other player in the league.

All-Star Game is about

All-Star Game is about excitement. Put exciting athletic and talented players in and leave the boring old ones. They put up stats and are on good teams, but that doesn't make them exciting! Give them what they deserve in the All-NBA Teams and give us a show! I mean, really!

Yea... I was about to say...

Yea... I was about to say... Gasol hasn't been as great since his hot start, but I still think he should replace Yao at center in the starting lineup.

Their might be 2 spots since DWill has a wrist injury, maybe 3

cause Timmy might pass it up

So Monta, Love, LA, and Nash will fight for those spots

So many Allstar calibur

So many Allstar calibur players whose teams are losing. I really feel for Monta, he is one of a kind and really doesnt get the recognition he deserves.

I think Rudy Gay should be in

I think Rudy Gay should be in consideration for his first All-Star nod, he's having a great year, especially in close games where he's hit a number of game-winners. That said, if it's really a replacement for Yao, it should be Aldridge.

if pops picks the starter

wouldnt it make sense for pops to put timmy in the starting line up sense he is one of his players and plus just out of pure respect for one of the greatest ever
